About Joseph Fritz
I retired as a dentist in 2015 after practicing for 31 years. I have lived all my life in the Chicago area but now spend my winters down here in Florida.
Joseph Fritz purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Joseph Fritz chose Indian Shores
I have vacationed up and down this beach since 2001 and jumped on the opportunity to buy in 2008. I have stayed at Barefoot at least 10 times since then, my daughter has been there 5 times and mother 3 times, among other relatives and friends. The grounds are immaculately landscaped and 2 minute walk to the beach. The fishing is great off our pier and my daily beach walks and sunsets are just across the street. The visitors are always friendly, enjoying the warm sunshine poolside.

We had a great time and found our accommodations were wonderful. Love that Barefoot Beach Resort is close to many restaurants. We enjoyed dinner at Salt Rock Grill and walked to the coffee shop several times. The beach is directly across the street and the water was warm and inviting.
The unit had everything we needed!
Comfy and convenient
This place worked out perfectly for our family of 5. A pack and play was available for our 5 month old and our older girls shared a room. Just across the street to one of the best beaches I have visited! We could also walk to a coffee shop easily. I already want to go back to Indian Shores-I am glad we stayed here instead of Clearwater, it was a lot quieter and less crowded, but still a short drive to St Pete or Clearwater for sightseeing. The owner was so friendly and communicative, I hope we can come back soon!
My family was so very happy with our decision to rent this condo. The amenities, for the most part, were as if we were at home. Loved the quiet area location. Would return.
Great beach getaway
Joe's condo was great. Located on the corner of the second building in from the street, it was only a stone's throw from both the community pool and the beach access. The beach was the highlight of our trip: sugar white sand, crystal clear warm water, incredible sunsets and we even had a manatee swim right by us! Arrival and getting into the condo was a breeze. Condo was clean, and nicely decorated, with plenty of beach chairs, toys, and beach towels. Maybe some of the detailing was a bit dated but fit in with the date of the condo complex itself.
A couple of things would make this place even better: provide a cooler for the beach, even just a small soft one that you can throw a couple cans of beer, seltzer and a couple sandwiches in. The bathroom: provide shampoo for guests, ditch the cheap single-ply toilet paper. We were provided a bunch of bath salts, but no bath?, and shampoo would have been more appreciated. Buy a bottle of liquid hand soap for the bathroom, it's just easier than a messy bar. The kitchen: we didn't have any dish soap, which was likely an oversight, but either way, I don't want to run the dishwasher for 3 things. Some of the skillets in the kitchen could use an upgrade. Otherwise, provide the bike lock code for the bike in the sun room, although the tires needed air, so it wouldn't have gotten one of us far without a pump.
Overall, great stay and super relaxing. I liked that the complex wasn't overly busy, so if your goal is a quiet, relaxing beach getaway, this place would do the trick.
Thank you so much for your positive review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at my condo! I appreciate your constructive comments, too. Next time you stay, most of the toiletries will be provided for you, as suggested. It is hard to keep a cooler in the unit, they seem to "disappear". The bike is for my personal use, I'm concerned about liability. Again, thank you for your stay and I hope you choose to visit my condo again in the future! Joseph
Very nice condo with the waterway on the east and the beach across the street to be able to catch sunrise and sunset with a few steps in either direction. Nice condo, we enjoyed it very much and will be back.
Thank you for your positive review, it is much appreciated:) I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Barefoot Beach in beautiful Indian Shores and looking forward to your next stay!
Clean, well maintained condo. We enjoyed the big windows in the Florida room, comfortable spot. Pool area is on the intercoastal. We were there 4 days and always found this area pleasant to sun, swim, watch water birds. Beach is easy access across a two lane road. Coffee shop within walking distance. Delightful place to relax. Well located in quiet beach area though there are plenty of restaurants nearby.
Thank you for your positive review! Glad you enjoyed your beach break and am looking forward to your next stay:)
